A man with no fixed address was taken to a hospital Saturday after he drove into two parked cars, pushing one into a Waldorf home.

At 3:30 a.m. Aug. 24, Charles County sheriff's officer M. Armstrong was patrolling near Smallwood Drive and Barrington Drive in Waldorf when he allegedly noticed a Lincoln passenger car fail to stop at a stop sign.

Armstrong attempted to pull the car over, but the driver, 31, did not stop.

Police said the driver increased his speed as he got onto Stone Avenue.

The car continued on Stone and skidded through the intersection of Stone and Barrington Drive, striking two cars in the driveway of a home on the 800 block of Barrington.

Sheriff's office spokeswoman Diane Richardson said that one of the cars was pushed into the lower level of the home.

Richardson said the driver was flown to Prince George's Hospital Center in Cheverly with injuries that were not life-threatening.

The passenger, a 36-year-old woman from Bryans Road, was treated on the scene for minor injuries, police reported.

Names have not been released because charges are pending, Richardson said.

She said that the driver had previously had his license suspended and revoked, and the passenger, who owns the vehicle, also has a suspended license. None of the occupants of the home were injured, Richardson said.
